Isoflurane-anesthetized rats submitted to a closed head injury (CHI) display a significant decrease of their blood glutamate levels. Having demonstrated that a decrease of blood L-glutamate (glutamate) causes an increase of the driving force for a spontaneous brain-to-blood glutamate efflux, and consequently affords brain neuroprotection, we investigated(More)
Animal models of cerebral ischemia represent an important contribution to both our understanding of stroke mechanism and the development of new therapies. The technique of MCAO (middle cerebral artery occlusion) via ECA (external carotid artery) occlusion is widely utilized. Disruption of the ECA and its branches leads to impaired mastication and oral(More)
BACKGROUND Isoflurane-anesthetized rats subjected to traumatic brain injury (TBI) show a transient reduction in blood L-glutamate levels. Having previously observed that isoproterenol produces a sustained decrease in blood glutamate levels in naive rats, we investigated the possible effects of nonselective and selective β1 and β2 adrenergic agonists and(More)
I wi Brou t t Bowrr. Corporare Rescwc-li CRB. CH-.The performance of highly doped SnO, anodes for the oxidative treatment of biologically refractory ~ a s t e water was compared with PbO, and Pt. The oxidation of a wide range of organic compounds proceeds with a n efficiency which is about 5 times higher than with platinum anodes. The oxidation efficiency(More)
